SEATTLE -- Offers were out there. Ed Donatell didn't need to standing in the middle of a college field, explaining to a 19-year-old kid why he should have started his drop with his left foot instead of the right. Donatell could still be in the NFL, working at the highest level with players that don't need the fundamentals pounded into their heads on a constant basis. Sure, Donatell wouldn't likely be a defensive coordinator, as he was for seven years with a pair NFL teams, but he would already be evaluating film from exhibition games and would never have to worry about recruiting.

Preston Dennard, who last week said he resigned his position as a Cal State Fullerton assistant football coach, now says he did not resign but was dismissed because of a staff cut caused by concerns over an athletic department deficit. Dennard, a former Ram receiver, coached at Fullerton for one season. He lost his job when Coach Gene Murphy was told to reduce his staff to eight assistants, one below the NCAA standard for Division I programs, Dennard and other department sources said.

The shuffling at Cal State Fullerton has been going on for some time, as the athletic department works to correct inequities between men's and women's sports at the school. The women's basketball program and the women's softball program have moved from cramped offices into larger ones. Maryalyce Jeremiah, the women's basketball coach, now drives a courtesy car, as does men's basketball coach John Sneed. But the critical issue at Fullerton, as usual, is money.
